Firstly, I agreed with everything in this article, it was just spot-on. The doctor's treatment of this subject is so timely for right now; it's heartening to know that someone "gets it." Speaking strictly for myself here, what I've understood from what I've read in the Bible causes me to believe that the Christian view has must train its focus properly on conservation - that is, with man sharing the planet sustainably with other creatures, as God intended. This seems to be lacking in the Republican Party's perspective. Poor environmental stewardship is one of the consequences of our not obeying God's mandate from the very beginning: to share the earth with all living creatures and tend earth as one would a garden - i.e., with great love and care. I also feel the church and this party should be attacking the very deadly vice of Greed, which makes itself so felt in the financial realm, and covetness, which is related to greed; and of the need to cultivate the virtues of contentment as Paul wrote about. What I see is the other party using the Republican party's failures with these key issues to their advantage. We must be Christians first, always - that is, living in sync with the plumb line of God's standards, and not party affiliates first, seeking to align our beliefs to the party line.

The question to ask is not whose side is God on. The question to ask is who is on God's side.

A few years ago I heard a powerful speaker talk about our personal accountability before God if we cast our vote for a politician who is pro-choice....There is certainly more than one political issue which involves morality in light of God's written word. My conscience has no longer allowed me to vote for one of the 3 major national parties up here in Canada. I've opted for a small party called Christian Heritage. Some would say, "you're splitting the vote." The other way of looking at it is, if the most conservative candidate contemplates all the votes going to this small party, maybe he/she should will his/her positon on these issues of morality. One of the most powerful preachers your country ever produced, David Wilkerson, said (years ago) "I've been thinking; if I walk into a voting both to cast my ballot I may simply write "Jesus" on the ballot."
